    Lol I bought a home made pick like that from someone here on the forum 10 years ago and all the welds were cold, and the pick head snapped off before I ever used it in the field. I got a estwing paleo pick today in the mail

    The handle on the Eastwing Paleo will bend if you try to lever with it. Other than that it's an good pick for all around light rock work. For detecting Bunk's Hermit pick is the best I've found.

    Good luck with you new Estwing. They make a great product. I have their large and small pick hammers, for 35 years now.


    Lying is now the norm. The truth is not only unwelcome, it is offensive.

    My dad uncle and gpa were brick and stone masons and I always remember estwing brick hammers and chisels and three pounders around the jobsites. Theyd wear them out before they broke them.
    I've always preferred estwing framing hammers working construction and have an assortment of estwing tools, Geo pick, rock hammers, camp axe, hatchet, gad bar. Can't go wrong with estwing. Some of the worlds strongest handles.

    Yep Estwing makes a good product. Picked up one of these at a garage sale for a buck not knowing what is was and neither did they.
    After a google image search I found it. It's a gem scoop -- I use it as a hiking stick.
